Based on the popular light novel series from Fujimi Fantasia Bunko, which inspired three anime adaptations, DATE A LIVE, DATE A LIVE II, DATE A LIVE III, and the anime movie Gekijoban DATE A LIVE: Mayuri Judgement, the story of DATE A LIVE begins thirty years after a series of large disasters, known as Spacequakes, that were caused by the appearance of mysterious entities known as Spirits.

Shido Itsuka, an average high school student, encounters a Spirit named Tohka Yatogami who has lost all hope in humanity. Shido is later told by his younger sister, Kotori, that he alone possesses the ability to seal the power of a Spirit.

In order to protect the world and to save the Spirits, Shido is determined to do whatever he can. No matter the obstacle, he is ready to face the Spirits head-on!
